What can I do to my case?

Post by deleted » Fri Jun 26, 2009 3:22 pm

I actually found the PC Case I currently use on the internet as : http://images.doba.com/products/4/A605YELLOW3.jpg

Is there anything, mod wise that you guys could think of to make it look a bit more appealing?

Thanks.

you could always cut a window and give the interior a nice flat black coat of paint.

This is something I plan on doing to my next build.

I don't know why they can't just paint the interiors on all cases.

I don't think I really have the patience to cut a window in my PC and still make it look good... O_o

I've often wondered that myself. At least the big players are finally starting to do that like Antec, Cooler Master, etc. I have an OLD Superflower case that's made of aluminum that's anodized black inside and out and has 3 windows. I'd still be using it if it had room for 120mm fans.

If you plan to paint the interior of a case may I suggest investing in a pop-rivet gun and de-mill the case. My first interior was done assembled and I still haven't gotten all of the overspray and "floating paint" out of it. :( I've disassembled all the rest that I've don the interior on and it is well worth the time and effort. :)
